Just two words... Absolutely Fantastic!

Afer being a CyanogenMod user for many months, the only usable version for me was 10.1.3 RC2. After trying all existing versions including latest CM11 nightly. All had some issue or another.

Then I tried different modified stock ROMS (including Rizal Lovins's modified JB4.3 leaked version -which is close to being one of the best ROMS out there), but none have the fluidity of a CM based rom.

Last night I gave a try to CyanFox, after all, the Tsubasa version was requested by myself. And they did deliver.

What an amazing Rom, love how fast it is and how 98% of the apps I use on a daily basis work perfectly.
I have only found a few issues, but I can live with them.

- Battery life is not as good as with stock rom, but it ain't that bad either
- Camera doesn't let me change location of photos, no option to select external SD card.

Anyway I automatically send all photos to Dropbox, so it doesn't bother me that much.

Having said all this, I strongly recommend everyone to give the rom a try.

You can find the links here...

I do recommend using Mr Rizal Lovins Z1 keyboard ports, they are a lot better than AOSP stock keyboard

Good luck

And I thank all you amazing creators for the excellent work you are doing, my wife doesn't understand how I can fiddle for hours with my phone, but I'm sure you do, and I have to thank you for the great effort you guys put into all this!

The website isn't very clear about the benefits of this ROM. Would you mind explaining a bit?

Its based on CM11, but with more 'extras', and so far its working really well.
I got from play store a Z1 theme for Cyanogen, plus Rizal Loving Z1 keyboard and it just works as it should. No FC's yet at all (and strangely it is based on a nightly version of CM11.

I also tried LG Cybershot camera that was ported from Rizal Lovins (fantastic work in all he does). But the CM stock camera works really well and fast. So I'm happy with the stock one.

Best anyone can do is try for themselves. After all, we all have different opinions and views of what we need on a phone.

Guys, don't forget you'll need the Gaps from CyanFox for it to work properly.

How's it if comparing with Rizal's KK 4? The only two issues with are random reboots and battery drain, just as the CM11 nightly

Instability is the only reason why I am on stock based rom.

I haven't got any random reboots yet... so it is a bit more stable.
Battery drain is high, but last night when I woke up only went down 3.4% per hour, according to Better battery stats:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1179809

So when not in use, its not that bad... with stock I would get in sleep mode between 1.5% - 2% per hour.

But the rom is faster and more configurable than stock.
